SECTION 1
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

1.1 Introduction
In grid-connected Solar Photo-Voltaic (SPV) systems, solar energy is fed into
the building loads that are connected to the public electricity grid through a
service connection with surplus energy being fed into the grid and shortfall
being drawn from the grid. Production of surplus energy may happen when
solar energy produced exceeds building load energy demand. This surplus is
fed into the grid. During the night, or when during the day energy demand in
the building exceeds solar energy production, energy is drawn from the grid.
Grid connected solar PV systems have no battery storage and will not work
during grid failure. For buildings with grid-connected solar PV systems, the
service connection meter needs to be of the bidirectional type, whereby
import kWh and export kWh are separately recorded. A grid-connected Solar
Photo Voltaic (SPV) power plant consists of SPV array, Module Mounting
Structure, Solar Grid Inverter (SGI), control and protection devices, circuit
breakers, interconnection cables and switches. Components and parts used in
the SPV power plants shall conform to the BIS or IEC or other international
specifications, wherever such specifications are available and applicable.

1.2 Quality and Workmanship

Solar PV modules are designed to last 25 years or more. It is therefore essential
that all system components and parts, including the mounting structures,
cables, junction boxes, distribution boxes and other parts also have a life cycle
of at least 25 years. Therefore all works shall be undertaken with the highest
levels of quality and workmanship. During inspection NREDCAP and its
representatives will pay special attention to neatness of work execution and
conformity with quality and safety norms. Non compliant works will have to be
redone at the cost of the Installer.
